Two Museums

I recently made two trips to the British Museum. One was to see the special Moctezuma Exhibition (no photos allowed, unfortunately) and the other was for a general browse.

This pictorial report is largely unannotated as the contents of the museums rather speak for themselves.

I 'sort of' know this guy - he always sits in front of me at the cinema

Another special exhibition displayed Mexican prints between 1910 and 1960

The Victoria & Albert Museum had an exhibition all about
the Medieval and Renaissance periods (300 - 1600)
has recieved very favourable reviews. I was keen to see it.

One point of the exhibition was to show that people from Medieval times had a lot more skill and artistic expertise than is generally appreciated.
